I have a PHP error that only occurs when I have a new router attached. I will post the complete code here but it works fine on one router but not another. I have put the problem on a forum for Hardware people but have had no replies. To see the complete problem go HERE.

The code that follows will not work as the developers key and other information has been taken out, it is just provided as there may be a way for you to advise a change that may work ??

It is a very strange problem that it works on one router and not another.

If it works on one router, and not the other, then maybe your code is using a callback method for verification (the server tries to call one of your pages for verification). If the first router has port forwarding enabled (it will forward the request), and the second doesn't, it would explain your problem.


Hi this thread can be closed as I have new code that fixes the problem
